About the Ziptrek Giants
The Ziptrek Giants is an employee-led initiative that was founded in 2019. The team meets once a month to discuss and address sustainable initiatives in our business, community, and beyond. They have hosted a number of fundraisers, including movie screenings and educational workshops. The group also organizes employee challenges that aim to educate our team on sustainable choices.
The Ziptrek Giants help implement and develop our ecological curriculum which we share on our Ziptrek and TreeTrek tours. By engaging our team in the curriculum that we deliver on our tours we keep the content relevant and engaging for employees and guests alike.
Merchandise Donation Program
In 2020, the Giants launched a Merchandise Donation Program. $5 from photo, video, and branded merchandise product is donated to a charitable organization of the guest's choice.
Guests choose from three organizations that rotate regularly. The charities are chosen by our staff and/or based on recent worldwide events.
Since starting the program in 2020, with our guest's help have been able to make over $5,500 in donations.
